Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Re: Why Don't You Like the 80's?

I like the 80's, and I like Brent. Sure, the early 70's rocked, but the band got older. Eaither you are on the bus or you got off.

Here's an analogy from the view of a man: when you got married, it was because you thought she was hot and sexy. But as she gets older, she starts to change and grow in different areas. Things change, they don't stay the same. You need to grow with her and accept those changes. Hell, you aren't a spring chicken anymore yourself. If you really loved her, you will accept her through better or worse, in health or in sickness.

The Dead to me are a lot more than a young band who peaked in 1974. They are the full meal deal, and I personally liked what they did all the way through the 80's.
